This collection presents theoretical and empirical research on criminal victimization. The first part of the book challenges stereotypical conceptions of victimization, focusing on non-traditional victims of crime such as male victims of domestic violence, victims of male-on-male rape, institutional victims and the ""victim-offenders"" who are the recipients of IRA punishment beatings.

The second part of the volume considers criminal justice responses to victimization. Chapters examine the perspectives of victims who become involved in court, probation and restorative processes. This book should further debate on how we conceptualize victims as well as their appropriate role within the criminal justice system.
